Lady Gaga is praised for her kindness towards a frail Liza Minnelli, 76, during the Oscars


Lady Gaga was hailed as a ‘person to look up to and admire’ after a touching interaction with Liza Minnelli at the Oscars went viral online. 

The global superstar, 35, co-presented the award for Best Picture alongside actress Liza, 76, at the 94th Academy Awards in Hollywood on Sunday. 

After wheeling Liza out in a wheelchair, the Bad Romance songstress was later seen comforting the accoladed star by whispering: ‘I got you’, as she tried to read her lines.

Showing her appreciation, Liza replied: ‘I know.’ 

The poignant moment saw an abundance of praise piled onto the House Of Gucci actress, with one moved fan saying it should be the ‘highlight of the night.’ 

Another chimed: ‘Lady Gaga showing us all what respect, love, and admiration look like. And Liza Minnelli being the absolute queen that she is.’

Another tweet read: ‘Lady GaGa has consistently shown real humanity understanding kindness support and respect. Genuinely a super person a consummate vocal Artist and performer. A person to look up to and admire.’          

Liza received a standing ovation from the star-studded crowd on Sunday night, with Gaga also taking the time to applaud the legendary star.

‘Oh! That’s so exciting!’ exclaimed the Cabaret actress with a laugh.

‘Do you see that? The public, they love you,’ said the Poker Face singer, before helping Liza get her cue cards in order.

‘Good evening, you know how I love working with legends,’ said Gaga, while staring down and placing a hand on Liza’s shoulder. 

‘Aw, my baby!’ said Liza as she grasped onto the Grammy Award-winner’s hand.

Gaga continued: ‘And I am honoured to present the final award of the evening with a true show business legend.’

The likes of Kristen Stewart and Javier Bardem were all captured applauding Liza.

‘She’s celebrating the 50th anniversary of Cabaret,’ announced Gaga, with Liza famously winning Best Actress for her leading role in the 1972 musical feature.

‘Oscar award-winning actress Liza Minelli,’ continued the singer, which earned around round of applause for the star.

Liza then proceeded to announce they’d be unveiling the winner for Best Picture, with Gaga elaborating that they’d be reading out the nominees first. 

After unveiling the nominees, Liza told Gaga she was her ‘biggest fan’ and ‘so happy’ to be there with the singer. 

Liza, opening a red envelope, announced the winner for Best Picture to be Apple Tv+’s feature CODA. 

All love: 'Do you see that? The public, they love you,' said the Poker Face singer, before helping Liza get her cue cards in order

The 94th annual Academy Awards ceremony saw Jessica Chastain win her first Best Actress trophy and CODA make history as the first ever streaming film to earn Best Picture.

But Will Smith has no doubt become the most talked about moment of The Oscars after his Best actor victory was marred following a physical altercation with Chris Rock. 

He beat out Javier Bardem – Being the Ricardos, Benedict Cumberbatch – The Power of the Dog, Andrew Garfield – tick, tick… BOOM!, and Denzel Washington – The Tragedy of Macbeth.

Will snapped up the award for his portrayal of Richard Williams, the determined father who raised tennis champions Venus and Serena Williams, in King Richard.

But the win was overshadowed as the actor, 53, earlier stormed on to the Oscars stage and slapped presenter Chris Rock for making a joke about his wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s haircut.

Stand-up comedian Chris upset Will when he compared his wife’s hair to that of G. I. Jane’s, who has a shaved head. Pinkett Smith suffers from hair loss condition alopecia.

Honored: 'And I am honored to present the final award of the evening with a true show business legend,' said Gaga

After Will strode out on stage and slapped Chris with an open right hand, the comedian staggered and exclaimed ‘wow, Will Smith just smacked the s**t out of me.’

Will, visibly emotional, walked back to his seat in the audience and shouted: ‘Keep my wife’s name out of your f***ing mouth.’

The exchange was muted on a delayed telecast in much of the US, but was aired in full to some international audiences.

Will was still allowed to make his acceptance speech and, with tears streaming down his face, he appeared to defend hitting Chris because he said he wanted to protect his family.

‘Love makes you do crazy things’, the rapper admitted as he accepted his Best Actor Oscar statuette.

He added that being a Hollywood star means you should be able to ‘have people disrespecting you and that ‘you just gotta smile and pretend it’s ok,’ he said.

But he added that he admired Richard Williams who ‘was a fierce defender of his family.’

‘I’m being called on in my life to love people and to protect people and to be a river to my people,’ he explained.
